PREFACE. 



The first edition of the Alumni Record of Wesleyan University 
was published in 1869. It was compiled by Orange Judd, of the class 
of 1&47, and was published at his expense. To quote from the Preface 
to the edition of 1873, it was "not the least of Mr. Judd'S noble gifts to 
the University, in whose welfare he has always taken such a generous 
interest." This book was said to be more complete than any similar 
work previously issued by an American college. 

The second edition of the Record appeared in 1873. It was published 
by the Alumni Association, and was edited by a committee, appointed 
by the Association, consisting of Professors C. T. Winchester and 
William North Rice, and Mr. G. Brown Goode. 

The third edition was published by the University in 1883, under 
the ' direction of a committee of the Faculty, consisting originally of 
President Foss, and Professors Rice and Winchester; upon the 
resignation of President Foss, President Beach was appointed in his 
place, and during the absence for a year of Professor Winchester, 
Professor C. S. Harrington was added to the committee. Under the 
direction of this Committee of Supervision, the editing of the Record 
of Graduate Alumni was performed by Mr. Joseph C. Burke, of the 
class of 1874; Mr. G. Brown Goode prepared the Bibliographical 
Record, and Mr. C. S. Smiley, of the class of 1874, the Record of 
Non-Graduate Alumni. The Trustees authorized the edition in June, 
1^79, but the labor of obtaining information, now published for the 
first time, concerning the non-graduates, rendered it impracticable to 
issue the book until 1883. This edition of the Record, comprising 
836 pages, was also understood to be the most complete Alumni Record 
issued to date by any of the colleges of America. 

The Trustees voted in June, 1909, to publish a fourth edition of the 
Record, and appointed. Professors Rice and Winchester to assist the 
Editor as an Advisory Committee. The aim has been to make this 
edition as complete as its predecessors in most particulars. Some 
consideration had to be given, however, to the question of bulk, as 
the number bf graduates and non-graduates has more than doubled 
since 1883. The family records of the non-graduates and of the mem- 
bers of the Faculty, not graduates of Wesleyan, have therefore been 
omitted, and instead of printing a complete Bibliographical Record, the 
titles of books published, or of the most important of them in case 



WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY ALUMNI RECORD. 

the list was long, have been inserted in the personal record. In some 
particulars this edition is more complete than the earlier ones, as, for 
instance, in including the fraternity relationship of graduates and 
non-graduates. It is a matter of regret that considerations of space 
have compelled the adoption of a somewhat condensed form of state- 
ment ; the book would have been more attractive in appearance if the 
names, degrees, etc., could have been displayed in better typographical 
form. 

To quote again from the preface to an earlier edition, "in a work 
of this kind it is necessary to aim at entire accuracy, but folly 
to expect to attain it." The Editor is fully conscious that there are 
many errors in these pages. In partial extenuation he would plead 
that from a number of the graduates, and from a much larger number 
of the non-graduates, he has been unable to obtain the information 
needed in order to prepare a full and accurate record. In cases where 
the blank form asking for information was not returned, a second 
and, later, a third communication was sent, but a number made no 
reply, and a few definitely refused to accede to the request. The 
Editor has done what he could to supply these deficiencies from other 
sources, but there is always doubt as to the accuracy of information 
thus obtained. One of the most difficult tasks hag been to trace the 
families of the alumni who have died since 1883, so as to bring the 
record of marriages and deaths of children up to date. From one 
source or another, however, the information has in most cases been 
secured. It is to be hoped that so long a period as twenty-eight years 
will not be allowed to elapse again before the publication of the next 
Alumni Record. 

The , following explanatory remarks may be offered concerning 
certain features of the book: 

Abbreviations. Only those in common use have been employed, as, 
for instance, h. fqr born, m. for married, d. for died. An asterisk 
before a name indicates decease. , 

Degrees. All degrees are from Wesleyan University, unless other- 
wise stated, except that in a few cases, for lack of information, M.D. 
is printed without indication of the college from which it was received. 

Bibliography. On account of lack of space it has been impossible to 
include mention of articles and ephemeral publications; the titles of 
books only are given, and in many cases mereV a selection of titles 
from a long list. ^ 

Fraternities. Mention of fraternities is restricted to those in active 
existence at the present time, including the Commons Club. These are, 
in the order of their establishment: Phi Nu Theta, or Eclectic, Psi 
Upsilon, Chi Psi, Alpha Delta Phi, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Beta Theta 
Pi, Delta Tau Delta, and the Commons Club. 

Non-graduates. The list does not include all who have studied at 
Wesleyan University, but only those who have been in residence long 
enough to undergo at least one examination. 



The Editor would acknowledge his obligation to the many persons, 
graduates of the college and others, who have replied so courteously to 
his requests for information; to the printers. The Tuttle, Morehouse & 
iTaylor Company, for their painstaking work; to Professors Rice and 
Winchester, for their criticism and advice; and to the Trustees, for 
giving him an opportunity of presenting to the college, which he has 
been permitted to serve for the last twenty years, this humble tribute 
of loyalty and affection.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF WESLEYAN 
UNIVERSITY. 

(By Professor C. T. Winchester, L.H.D.) 



It was not until about the close of the first quarter of the last 
century that the Methodist Episcopal Church began to give any very 
earnest and hearty patronage to the cause of higher education. 
Between the years 1824 and 1826, the flourishing seminaries at Wil- 
braham, Kents Hill, and Cazenovia were opened under the auspices 
of the denomination, and immediately secured a large attendance. 
While the seminaries served to foster and encourage the newly- 
awakened interest in education, the leading minds of the Church 
became convinced of the need of some institution of collegiate rank, 
located in New England or New York, which should provide facilities 
for the highest intellectual culture. 

At this juncture, a seeming accident turned their attention to Middle- 
town, Conn., and secured the immediate establishment of the projected 
institution at this place. In 1825, Capt. Alden Partridge, first Superin- 
tendent of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, opened in Mid- 
dletown the "American Literary, Scientific, and Military. Academy." 
Through the liberality of the citizens of Middletown, two substantial 
stone buildings had been erected for the school; and it was for a 
short time very prosperous, drawing cadets from almost every state in 
the Union. Its prosperity, however, soon waned; and, failing to 
obtain a charter from the Legislature, it was removed, early in 1829, to 
Norwich, Vt, leaving vacant the buildings it had occupied. The Rev. 
Laban Clark, D.D., then Presiding Elder of the New Haven District, 
happened shortly after to be in Middletown; and being informed that 
one of the trustees of these buildings had casually suggested selling 
them to the Methodists, for the sum of five thousand dollars, he at 
once notified them that he would be one of ten to purchase the pro- 
perty, and would promptly secure the other nine. This led to the 
serious consideration of the matter; and at the ensuing session of the 
New York Conference, May, 1829, Dr. Clark presented from the 
trustees proposals for the transfer of the property in due form, and 
urged their acceptance upon the conference. A committee, consisting 
of James Emory, Samuel Lucky, and Heman Bangs, was appointed to 
consider these proposals. The New England Conference, being invited 
to unite in the project, appointed Timothy Merritt, S. Martindale, artd 
Willbur Fisk to act in conjunction with the New York Committee. 

The first act of this joint committee was to issue proposals inviting 
the several towns within a specified region to compete for the location 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

of the college by the offer of subscriptions. Liberal offers came from 
Troy, N. Y., Bridgeport, Conn., and Wilbraham, Mass.; but those from 
Middletown were now so modified that the committee had no hesitation 
in preferring them. The trustees of the Academy, with the consent of 
the stockholders, offered the entire property, valued at about thirty 
thousand dollars, to the conferences, on the two conditions, that it 
should be perpetually used for a college or university, and that a fund 
of forty thousand dollars should first be raised, for the endowment of 
the college. About eighteen thousand dollars of this fund were promptly 
subscribed by citizens of Middletown. The report of the committee 
recommending the acceptance of.liiis offer was adopted at the session 
of conference in May, 1830. The forty thousand dollars was soon 
raised, trustees were at once chosen, and the college organized under 
the name, "The Wesleyan University." 

At the first meeting of the joint Board of Trustees and Visitors, 
August 24, 1830, the Rev. Willbur Fisk, D.D., then principal of Wes- 
leyan Academy, was elected first President of the Wesleyan University. 
In October of the same year, a preparatory school was opened in the 
buildings, under the superintendence of the Rev. W. C. Larrabee. In 
May, 1831, a charter was granted the University; and on the twenty- 
first of the following September its halls were opened to students. 
The Faculty consisted of President Fisk, Professors Augustus W. 
Smith and John Mott Smith, and Tutor W. Magoun. At first, ,in 
accordance with the peculiar views of President Fisk, which were 
afterwards entertained by Presidents Wayland of Brown and Marsh 
of the University of Vermont, the proficiency of the student was made 
the only basis of- classification; and any student able to pass the 
requisite examination received a diploma, without regard to the time he 
had spent in college. This plan, however, was soon abandoned, and 
the usual system of classification adopted in its stead. It is worthy of 
note, that the Wesleyan University anticipated another of the most 
important features of the new education, by establishing, very early 
in its history, a scientific course, to meet the wants of those who wished 
to obtain advanced literary and scientific training, but whose tastes or 
circumstances forbade the ordinary classical course. In its. early days 
of poverty and of struggle, the institution had many faithful and 
earnest friends, among whom Dr. Laban Clark and Dr. Heman Bangs 
are worthy of especial mention ; but to no one was it so deeply indebted 
as to its President, Willbur Fisk. His pure and lofty piety and his 
gentle and winning manner endeared him to all who knew, him; while 
his tact and prudence, his high administrative ability, his thorough 
culture and extensive reputation, and his untiring efforts in behalf of 
the University, soon assured its success, and secured for it general 
recognition. 

At the death of Dr. Fisk, in 1839, Dr. Stephen Olin, then in Europe, 
was elected President. On his return from Europe, the following year. 
Dr. Olin found himself too feeble to assume the duties of the presi- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

dency, and consequently resigned it early in 1841. In February of that 
year, DrJ Nathan Bangs wa« elected to the vacant post. Dn Bangs, 
then in the midst of a long and honorable career, felt that the sphere 
of his greatest usefulness lay elsewhere : he accepted the position with 
reluctance, and in' July, 1842, willingly resigned it to Dr. Olin, whose 
health had now so improved as to justify his 'acceptance. 

Dr. Olin's fame as a pulpit orator, and his previous success in a 
similar situation, caused him to be greeted with an enthusiastic wel- 
come. His health was so feeble as never to allow him to devote him- 
self as he wished' to the work of instruction. He was, however, very 
successful in improving the financial condition of the University, and 
exteJiding its reputation ; and his noble and commanding character was 
itself an inspiration to all the students under his charge. He received 
very efficient aid in the general administration of the University from 
Professor Augustus W. Smith, LL.D., who for several years filled the 
office of Vice President. 

■ Dr. Olin died in 185I. After an interval of a year^ Professor Smith 
was elected to the chair of President. Dr. Smith had been connected 
with the University from the beginning; he was a most thorough 
scholar, and extended, while President, the high and well-deserved 
reputation he had won as a professor of mathematics. It was the con- 
stant desire of President Smith, during the whole terra of his adminis- 
tration, to secure such an endo'wment fund for the University as would 
relieve it from the constant pressure of financial embarrassment, and 
assure its continued existence and prosperity. About one hundred 
thousand dollars was subscribed to this fund; and although, as is 
usual in such cases, the full amount subscribed was never realized, yet 
by the persevering labors of President Smith, ably aided by Professor 
H. B. Lane, more than eighty thousand dollars was at this time 
invested for the endowment of professorships. Mr. Isaac Rich, of 
Boston, was the chief donor to this fund. 

Upon the resignation of President Smith, in 1857, the Rev. Joseph 
Cummings, D.D., LL.D., President of Genesee College; was elected to 
the vacant post, although he did not assume office until the spring of 1858. 
The personal force and energy of President Cummings, his tireless 
industry, his hearty devotion to the welfare of the University, together 
with his skill and popularity as an instructor, combined to make his 
administration in many respects a very successful one. It was particu- 
larly marked by the growth of the material interests of the institution, 
in which President Cummings always took especial concern. To his 
labor's the University is principally indebted for the line of noble 
buildings that now crown the hill. 

During the Commencement week of 1868, a new and tasteful library 
building, capable of containing ninety thousand volumes, was dedicated. 
This building was erected by the late Mr. Isaac Rich, at a cost of forty 
thousand dollars. During the same week, the contributions of Mr. 
Rich to the Endowment Fund were increased to one hundred thou- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

sand 'dollars. In the fall of 1868, the old "Boarding Hall" was remod- 
eled and transformed into "Observatory Hall," by the addition of a 
handsome tower, in which was placed one of Alvan Clark's finest 
refracting telescopes. The Commencement season of 1871 was ren- 
dered memorable by the dedication of two new and beautiful buildings. 
The one, the Memorial Chapel, was erected at a cost of about sixty 
thousand dollars, in memory of those alumni and students who fell in 
the war for the Union. The funds for the erection of this chapel were 
mostly raised by general subscription during the centenary year, 1866. 
The other building was the Orange Judd Hall of Natural Science, 
erected during the years 1869-71, at a cost of one hundred thousand 
dollars. For this building the University is indebted to the munificence 
of Orange Judd, Esq., of New York, N. Y., who will ever be remem- 
bered as one of the most faithful and generous friends of his Alma 
Mater. 

It was during this period also that provision was made for the 
regular increase of the library and the scientific collections of the Uni- 
versity. During the years 1864-65, a library fund amounting to twenty- 
seven thousand six hundred dollars was raised by the alumni. This 
fund, although originally none too large, and afterwards somewhat 
depleted by unfortunate investments, secured for the library a contin- 
uous, if not a very rapid, growth. The completion of the Orange 
Judd Hall of Natural Science, in 1872, provided ample accommodations 
for the proper care and arrangement of the scientific collections of the 
University; and in the years immediately following, large additions 
were made to these collections, chiefly by the endeavors of Mr. G. 
Brown Goode, then Curator of the Museum. Since that time the 
growth of the Museum has been constant arid rapid. In 1872 the col- 
lege curriculum was enlarged, especially in the department of natural 
science, and modified by the extension of the elective system; and in 
the fall of that year the halls of the University were, for the first time, 
opened to women. 

President Cummings resigned his position in June, 1875, though he 
continued in charge of the department of philosophy until January, 
1878. At a special meeting, held July 28, 187S, the Trustees elected as 
the successor of President Cummings, the Rev. Cyrus D. Foss, D.D. 
President Foss entered upon the duties of his oflice at the opening of 
the fall term, and was formally inaugurated October 26, 1875. He 
found it necessary to give immediate attention to the enlargement of 
the permanent funds of the University. The -growth of the endowment 
during the previous ten years had by no means kept pace with the 
growth of the unproductive wealth of the University in buildings, collec- 
tions, and other material facilities. The increase in the number of 
buildings and the needful enlargements of the course of study ren- 
dered the annual expenditures, of necessity, greater than ever; while, 
on the other hand, in the stagnation of business and general financial 
depression that followed the panic of 1873, the productive property of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

the University had depreciated greatly in value. In March, 1876, a<com-, 
mittee of the Trustees decided that only about one-half of the bills 
receivable reported at the previous Commencement could be any longer 
considered good. A debt, allowed gradually to increase for twenty 
years, had reached the sum of sixty thousand dollars ; while the total 
amount of funds from which income was available was only one hun- 
dred and forty-one thousand dollars. The annual expenditure was 
about forty-sjx thousand dollars;- the annual income from all sources 
only twenty thousand. In these circumstances, it was evident-^to 
quote the words of President Foss in his report to the conference in 
1876 — that "only large and generous help, promptly given to the insti- 
tution, could save it from disaster." Never, perhaps, was the Univer- 
sity in a more critical position. It is gratifying to be able to record 
that the generosity of its friends soon removed it out of urgent danger. 
A committee appointed by the Alumni Association appealed for aid to 
all the graduates of the college. In response to this appeal about 
forty thousand dollars was subscribed, of which the greater part was 
paid. Still more largely liberal was the response to the untiring energy 
of President Foss. The inevitable annual deficit, while it yet continued, 
was met by generous annual subscriptions, in advance, chiefly from the 
Trustees. The debt of the University was paid. Largely by his efforts, 
the "Centennial Fund," started in 1876, was carried to about four 
hundred thousand dollars, some of which was not paid in until after 
his retirement from the presidency. During the five years of his 
administration, nearly two hundred and fifty thousand dollars was 
added to the permanent productive funds. If the needs of the Uni- 
versity were still great, the danger of immediate disaster was past. Of 
the group of generous friends whose liberality brought this timely aidj 
the largest giver was Hon. George I. Seney, who began then the series 
of his princely gifts. 

But it was not financial success alone that marked the administration 
of President Foss. A character so noble, a kindness and courtesy so 
unvarying, an enthusiasm for goodness so inspiring, a piety so high and 
pure — these could not fail of their effect upon all who knew him. His 
influence was itself an education of the best sort No president of 
Wesleyan University was ever more respected; none was ever better 
beloved. 

In May of 1880, President Foss was called by the General Confer- 
ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church to fill the highest office in the 
gift of the Church. At the annual meeting of the Trustees in June fol- 
lowing, the place thus made vacant was filled by the election of the Rev. 
John W. Beach, D.D. President Beach brought to his position a sound, 
conservative scholarship, combined with energy and caution in the man- 
agement of practical affairs and a remarkable mastery of administrative 
details. The opening years of his administration promised a large 
increase in the resources of the University, but adverse circumstances 
prevented the complete fulfillment of that- promise. A period of 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

general financial stringency came on. There was a shrinkage in 
rates of interest, and Mr. Seney, the most liberal benefactor of the 
University thus far, who had already given over one hundred and 
seventy-five thousand dollars, found it impossible to pay the large 
additional sum which he had promised in the first year of President 
Beach's administration. For some years, therefore, the University 
grew but slowly, yet it continued to grow. No additional debts were 
incurred, the number of the Faculty was not lessened, while the 
number of students steadily, though slowly, increased. 

President Beach retired from office in 1887, and Senior Professor 
John M. Van Vleck, to whose wise counsels Wesleyan University 
has owed so much ever since its early days, served as Acting Presi- 
dent for two years. In November, 1888, the Rev. Bradford Paul 
Raymond was elected President, but did not assume the duties of his 
oflSce until the beginning of the next college year, in September, 1889. 
At the time of his election, President Raymond was at the head of 
Lawrence University, in Appleton, Wis. He had enjoyed a thorough 
educational trainir^, and brought to his new office enthusiasm, vigor, 
and liberal notions of educational policy. He held the chair of Presi- 
dent until 1908, a longer period than that of any preceding President. 
Those nineteen years were marked by great advanceirient in almost 
every department of the college life. In December, 1889, Dr. Daniel 
Ayres gave to the University securities to the value of two hundred and 
fifty thousand dollars, "for scientific purposes.'' In the next year, 1890, 
by the willof D. B. Fayerweather, Wesleyan received a bequest of one 
hundred thousand dollars and a share in the residue of the estate. 
There was considerable litigation attending the settlement of the estate, 
but the University has received in all from that source, up to this time, 
the sum of nearly two hundred and tweiity-four thousand dollars. 
Twenty-five thousand dollars of the Fayerweather bequest was added 
to an amount already raised by subscription for a new college gynma- 
sium; and this building, the Fayerweather Gymnasium, was formally 
dedicated in October, 1895. With this exception, all of these two large 
bequests was devoted to the increase of the permanent Endowment 
Fund. Other gifts from time to time increased this permanent Endow- 
ment Fund before the close of the term of President Raymond to the 
sum of one million, five hundrefd and six thousand, nine hundred and 
nine dollars. 

The real property of the University also largely increased during 
President Raymond's term. In the summer of 1893 the interior of old 
North College was entirely renovated by Mr. John E. Andrus at an 
expense of about twenty-six thousand five hundred dollars. In 1903-04 . 
a new physical laboratory was erected by the liberality of Mr. Charles 
Scott and Mr. Charles Scott, Jr., of Philadelphia, to be called the John 
Bell Scott Laboratory of Physics, in memory of John Bell Scott of 
the class of 1881, who died while serving as naval chaplain during the 
Spanish war of 1898. This elegant and well-appointed building cost 



HISTORICAL SKETCH, 

about one hundred and seventeen thousand dollars. During the same 
years the Willbur Fisk Hall on High Street was erected at a cost of 
about one hundred and eighteen thousand dollars, and was paid for 
mostly by individual gifts in the "Twentieth Century Thank Oflfering 
Movement." 

On the morning of March I, 1906, the old North College burned to 
the ground. The new structure, which takes its place and occupies 
.the same site, was opened in the fall of 1907. It cost about one 
hundred and thirty-four thousand dollars. 

The Alumni Library Fund, which had originally amounted to twenty- 
seven thousand, six hundred dollars, had been reduced by unfortunate 
investments to about eighteen thousand dollars, a sum altogethet 
inadequate to the needs of the library. In the Commencement season 
of 189s, a movement was started to increase this fund by a general 
subscription among the alumni, and Mr. John E. Andrus generously 
offered to give on^-fourth of any amount that sjiould be thus raised. 
The sum raised in thi^ way amounted to sixteen thousand, eight hun- 
dred and iifty-seven dollars. Then, in the fall of 1898, the library 
received the sum cd thirty thousand dollars anjd a choice collection 
of six thousand volumes by the will of the Rev. Albert S. Hunt, D.D., 
of the class of 1851. Three years later the Library Fund received a 
further addition of twenty thousand dollars from a bequest of Mrs. 
Stephen Wilcox, of Brooklyn. The Library Fund at present amounts 
to eighty-nine thousand, two hundred and sixty-four dollars. 

The, total property of the University increased in these ways 
amounted^ at the close of the a,dniinistration of President Raymond, 
to two million, five hundred and eighty-nine thousand, nine hundred and 
twenty-three dollars, having more than doubled since he took office. 

The question of co-education was matter of earnest discussion during 
the virhole term of President Raymond. So long as there were com- 
paratively few women in college their presence excited little opposition, 
but after., 1890 their number, rapidly increased. In Mafch, 1899, the 
Trustees authorized the appointment of 3 joint committee of Trustees, 
Faculty, and alumni consider the whole question of co-education jn 
Wesleyan University. The deliberations of this committee lasted some- 
thing over a year, and they were not able then to agree upon a unani- 
mous report. But as the. result pf their deliberations, in June of 1900 
the Trustees voted that the number of women to be admitted to 
college in future should be limited to twenty per cent, of the total 
number of students in the preceding year. This action, however, like 
all measures of compromise, was not really satisfactory to anybody, 
and the opposition to co-educatioii, although less bitter and pronounced, 
continued, until finally, in February, 1909, the Trustees voted, that no 
women should be admitted to any class later than that entering in 
1909. In point of fact, no women presented themselves for admis- 
sion after the passage of that vote, and with the graduation of the class 
of 1912 it is probable that the presence of women undergraduates will 



HISTORICAL SKETCH; 

cease. The Trustees in a later resolution made it clear that women 
may be admitted as graduate students. 

The large addition to the resources of the University during Presi- 
dent Raymond's administration allowed an expansion of the course 
of study and an increase in the number of the Faculty. When he 
took office the Faculty numbered twenty. When he resigned it 
numbered thirty-seven. Appropriatioils were made by the State and 
the National Government for the prosecution of scientific research 
in the laboratories of the University, and it was in this period that the 
important investigations of Professors Atwater, Rosa, Benedict, and 
Conn did much to extend the reputation of the University. 

But large as was the increase in the resources of the University, its 
expenditures more than kept pace with its income,, until during the 
last few years of President Raymond's term there was a considerable 
annual deficit. The increasing cares and responsibilities of his office 
told heavily upon the health of President Raymond, and he was obliged 
in the summer of 1907 to tender his resignation, to take effect in 1908. 
He accepted the position of Professor of the English Bible, but his con- 
tinued ill health rendered it impossible for him to perform the duties of 
that office and, in 1909, he was. retired as Professor Emeritus. He is 
still living in Middletown, and his genial, sympathetic nature have won 
for him the lasting respect and love of a host of friends. 

On the resignation of President Raymond, Professor William North 
Rice, who, since the retirement of Professor Van Vleck in 1904, has 
been the Senior Professor in acting service, was made Acting President 
and filled that office for an interregnum of two years. On November 
13, 1908, the Trustees elected to the presidency William Arnold 
Shanklin, D.D., LL.D., then President of Upper Iowa University. Presi- 
dent Shanklin assumed the duties of his office immediately after Com- 
mencement, 1909, and was formally inaugurated on November 12, 1909. 
He devoted his first year to familiarizing himself with the details of 
administration and forming acquaintance with the student body, and 
with the patrons and friends of the University. The present year, 
1910-11, he is engaged in an effort to secure an addition of a million 
dollars to the resources of the University. His remarkable energy and 
the charm of his personality have evoked most general and hearty 
enthusiasm, stimulated everywhere the interest and loyalty of the 
alumni and friends of the University, and leave no doubt as to the 
success of his administration.
